that from george w. bush w who will not enter into the fray of this but understands what president obama is going through. he has been in that oval office. making these tough calls. there is only a few living americans who will understand how difficult these positidecis are. >> we are given the heads up of 1:15 eastern time for this statement. as often happens, with this white house, it is a bit delayed. we don't have a two-minute warning as of yet. we are back with our panel, chris wallace and ollie north. what do you expect him to say? is this more laying out the case? >> i think we will probably -- with a situation where he will announce he will continue to deliberate on this and will try to build some relationships. my guess is because the window is so narrow. you would have to do this tomorrow night. sunday might. because he is not going to do it before he briefs the rest of the members of congress. that's going to be tomorrow. he is going to leave monday night for sweden and then -- but -- that gives him essentially sunday night or monday night to make the attack. you probably don'
of then senator biden threatening to impeach then president george bush if he did not get congressional approval before going into iraq. this is becoming a cauldron of uncertainty. it is not good for the region -- >> president clinton lost some missiles in afghanistan. a lot has been written about how that in the end lead to 9/11. you never know about the unintended consequences here, do you? >> no, you don't. president clinton lobbed some missiles into southern iraq and at that point, a lot of people, a lot of our enemies took the notion that we were a paper tiger, that we were not willing to follow through with the actions and that we wanted to just do something. now is not the time to just do something. we ought to have a plan and now that the president has backed up , it is time to all come together and figure out what is it we really want to do that is in the national security interestses of the united states of america and then do it. >> i wanted to -- what greg just mentioned leads into my question. this is all coming down on the anniversary of 9/11. if the house votes what is the chance

worried about presidents who act unilaterally and he's doing it again just like george bush did. we made george bush come back to the congress and get a vote before we went into iraq. the congress, i think, made a mistake in doing it, but at least we all took responsibility for what happened. in this one, the president is taking it all on himself. what's the hurry and what is the goal? what are you expecting to be the goal that we accomplish day two after we've shot in 50 tomahawk missiles? when we have taken out assad? is that the goal? or is it take out the syrian army? or is it to lay the country waste to make rubble? what is it we are intending to get out of this? >> you clearly want a vote on this, and some of our viewers have been tweeting about this and there's a lot of consternation, obviously, as we stand now in the precipice of what looks like another war in the middle eve. one viewer writing into me, the president needs a vote here if for no other reason to have cover for what happens afterwards. do you think there will be political recriminations after the fact if the preside
in eight years of george bush? >> my producer just coughed up a hairball. >>sorry. >>just be grateful current tv doesn't come in "smell-o-vision" >> oh come on! the sweatshirt is nice and all, but i could use a golden lasso. (vo)only on current tv. this show is about analyzing, criticizing, and holding policy to the fire. are you encouraged by what you heard the president say the other night? is this personal, or is it political? a lot of my work happens by doing the things that i'm given to doing anyway, by staying in touch with everything that is going on politically and putting my own nuance on it. in reality it's not like they actually care. this is purely about political grandstanding. i've worn lots of hats, but i've always kept this going. i've been doing politics now for a dozen years. (vo) he's been called the epic politics man. he's michael shure and his arena is the war room. >> these republicans in congress that think the world ends at the atlantic ocean border and pacific ocean border. the bloggers and the people that are sort of compiling the best of the day. i do a l
believe the economy was so messed up by george bush that obama struggled mightily to overcome this horrible situation he inherited. the second reason is most americans believe republicans only care about rich people. and those are branding problems that the republican party has to to overcome. and it's hard to overcome it because you've got three obstacles; academia, hollywood and our major media, all of which are overwhelmingly liberal. when you say something, it's got to be interpreted through the filter of those three entities, and often it's been distorted. >> host: larry elder is our guest, this is booktv on c-span2 live from the los angeles times festival of books, campus of usc. mike's in fort worth, texas. hi, mike. >> caller: how's it going, larry? my -- pretty good. i'm a african-american democrat, but i agree with you one of the big problems in the african-american community is lack of fathers in the house. but i think, larry, when you say that, you kind of come off kind of harsh on black people. now, what's the reason behind the lack of a lot of fathers being in th
political career substantially on opposition to the iraq war and criticism of george w. bush did not allow un weapons inspectors to work through. syria and iraq called it a dumb war in iraq. and made his way politically off of that initial attack. what is interesting for the president, he is going to have to retreat to the same arguments that george bush and others would if he launches a military incursion in to syria. >> and also the issue of russia and iran. russia issued a warning of sorts, don't act to quickly and let the un weapons inspection play out and we have seen mistakes in the past by the u.s. we have a complicated relationship with the russian leaders. whatever he does in syria impacts them or iraq, and that may not be a show down he is not ready for. >> whatever relationship that exists tone president obama and president putin in russia will not help. that but the challenge to the president. the prime minister of britain, and david cameron and president of france, they are making the noise, let's bomb, let's bomb. and they want to repeat it would seem western powers did under
on fox george w. bush spoke for the first time about this. let's watch. >> president has a tough choice to make. if he decides to use our military, he'll have the greatest military ever backing him up. i was not a fan of mr. assad. he's an ally of iran and he's made mischief. >> so george w. bush. so that certainly is those decisions from ten years ago are overshadowing the debate and the american public opinion on this as well. steve clemons thanks so much and chris as well. in speaking out today about the crisis in syria this morning, former president bush gave an update on his health. earlier this month, of course, he underwent surgery to address a blockage in his heart. it was discovered during a routine physical. bush 43 known for active lifestyle is recovering and feeling good but not yet back on that mountain bike. >> i had a stent placed into my l.a.d. artery and i'm feeling pretty good. >> right. >> i wish i was a teenager so i could be out on my mountain bike today. but i'm slowly, slowly recovering. i thought i would be healthy forever. aging got me. hi, i'm karissa. hi, i'm
in a terrible position. >> we heard from george w. bush, he was on fox. he said this, listen to his care fiscal cli carefully constructed words. >> the president has a tough choice to make. if he decides to use our military, he'll have the greatest military ever backing him up. i was not a fan of mr. assad. he's an ally of iran and he's made mischief. the president has to make a tough call, brian pip kn. i know you're trying to subtley trying to republic me into the issues of the day. i refuse to be roped in. >> in contrast, jimmy carter through the jimmy carter center in atlanta issued a statement saying "a punitive military response without a u.n. security council mandate or broad support from nato and the arab league would be illegal under international law and unlikely to alter the course of the war." two different presidents -- >> do you think president obama is sending him a thank you note? >> he's sending bush a thank you note, not jimmy carter necessarily. >> bush does what he always does, which is -- >> he's been very consistent, says nothing. >> stays out of it. i didn't like mr. assa
. there is an inspector general. there are all kinds of safeguards built into this. i remember george bush, when he talked about this program, when it was first revealed by the new york times. he said, when al qaeda calls somebody in the united states, i want to know who they are calling. that is kind of the underlying philosophy of this program. we are talking again -- it always intends to spill over into people thinking, maybe we are monitoring the actual content of their conversations, and we are not all stop this is metadata. it is effectively the outside of the envelope that is put in your mailbox. it is that information that is on the envelope. and the date stamp in the postage stamp. >> would you have people believe that metadata has no significant privacy interest? i would rather, if i had a choice -- i hope not to have either of these choices -- of having every phone conversation i have for 30 days listens to, which is impractical, to have a large number of people doing that, or all my metadata collected for 30 days. i would much rather. >> if it was collected by proctor and gamble or colgate, i
andduring during the george herbert walker bush administration, the anti- tank buster rounds that were 1982.ed in we are not totally innocent either. it is hard to believe the administration. i know they are doing their best to settle the conflict in the middle east. is kind of hard when you are just as dirty as the rest of them. you can also reach out to us via e-mail. andy from vernon, new york. thanks for holding on, republican line. taking myink you for call. i want to add onto to what the last guy said. ,f your audience goes to google they are going to find numerous stories where syrian rebels admitted to an associated press correspondent that they were responsible for the chemical weapons incident, which obama is trying to blame on bashar al- assad. the casualties were a result of by mishandling the weapons. they were told that they were not properly trained in handling the chemical weapons or even told what they were. that is where it came from. this is really reminiscent of the buildup to the first iraq war in the 90s when the iraq incubator incident, in which they fabricated story
under international law and unlikely to alter the course of the war. in contrast, george w. bush held his fire in an interview with brian kilmeade, sympathizing with his predicament. >> putting the military in harm's way is a tough thing for the president. >> reporter: they're demanding the president call both chambers back to session to debate this out. speaker boehner's office said they haven't ruled out such a move, it would also mean harry reid bringing his chamber back. officials say it is highly unlikely, which is why tonight it is in the president's hands. >> ed henry at the white house, thank you. the chief diplomat is running points on the case for battle at least in public. chief correspondent james rosen has that from the state department. >> some cite the risk of doing things, but we need to ask what is the risk of doing nothing? >> reporter: making the case for a narrowly tailored military action in syria, john kerry vowed the u.s. inciting intelligence as grounds for commencing mid east hostilities is not repeating in syria the mistakes of iraq. >> because we know there'
at two other instances in which an american president used force, in the case of george bush in iraq, he had a congressional authorization and one u.n. resolution. in syria he has, president obama has neither of those but i think the u.s. congress and many in the need yaw are saying, what about libya? i mean we went to war in libya without a congressional authorization. we spent one billion dollars. we had 220 tomahawk missile strikes, et cetera, et cetera. what do we have at the end of it? we have benghazi with dead american ambassador and three diplomats and a country not really controlled by its own government. are we any better off? so there is so much skepticism as lauren pointed out, within the media but it mostly is based on america's previous experiences using force projecting force, mostly on its own. jon: let me take you to the second part of that charles krauthamer column because he touches on some of those points that you just made, judy. he also wrote last year, mr. obama told us repeatedly that the tide of war is receding. this year he grandly declared that the entire war o
they did? george h.w. bush, because about 20 years later, a woman showed up to one of his rallies with a pistol in her purse, and they were doing something they had done for the last 20 years that they had not done the 200 years before then. they were checking purses, too, and they found that. then you say to yourself, maybe what we need, maybe what we need is a racial squeaky fromm, and you start searching through the history books, you find out we had one.in 1901. raise your hand if you remember who was president before theodore roosevelt. no one remembered.a few guys, thank you. put those guys on "jeopardy!" most people forget when roosevelt came into the administration he was vice president and was somewhat who is this guy, this showboat guy from -- fighting wars in cuba. hat elevated him was that he was a very popular vice president for a popular president. it was mckinley.he was killed just after he was reelected. he was at a pan-american exposition, a world's fair in new york state. president mckinley was working the rope line, and a man standing at point blank range at the
john mccain got great press when he ran against george w. bush in the primaries. in 2008 he was on the other end of that. those things ebb and flow a little bit. i do not think in anyway those are the decisive in the way of presidential campaigns come out. i think if you talk to the romney people they felt that governor romney was unfair at different points along the way. i used to get e-mails about things that were being written or said or talked about. in general, i think those things balance out. in this campaign in particular there was never any question about vulnerabilities or weaknesses in terms of what happened with the economy. in a sense that both of them had had was they have to deal with. host: on twitter -- guest: perhaps so. especially with his medicare plan and his proposal to make a voucher out of that. i don't know it would have been significantly better had he picked someone else. host: jim messina asked to pledge that they do not rerun the 2008 campaign. jim messina explained that in their bid for reelection, both jimmy carter and george herbert walker bus
an issue of some level of hypocrisy in terms of the outrange that was heaped upon the george bush administration with respect to afghanistan and iraq. but there are some slight differences here. one to do with the documented facts of the u.s. of chemical weapons. number two, the general sense that this regime is unhenged and therefore needs to be contained in a way that you didn't necessarily see with the likes of some of the other players over the last few years, whether you're talking iran or whatever. so, i think that there's a different tone that you have with syria that you didn't have with the others. again, i harken back to similarities to kosovo from humanitarian perspective but it does put the democrats in a very ticklish box right now, particularly given the warriness of the american host: jim is on the line from texas. republican line. is whatmy question about this tainted election -- the obama administration. guest: in what respect? irs.r: the guest: the irs is a huge issue. i do not know how that translated in terms of a repressed election. that mightgroups have been
george bush on deck. >> brian: i just told him he looked good. he said he must have looked like hell before. he looks good now. guys, back to you. >> anna: 11 minutes after the hour. we have headlines. a developing story overnight. terrifying moments during the broncos game. crowds watched as a man fell from the escalator. he was rushed to the hospital with serious injuries. good news, he was conscious. no word if alcohol was a factor. >>> also breaking late last night, police in north carolina issuing an amber alert for a little girl you're about to see after she was snatched from a car in a grocery store park lot. the one-year-old girl was inside a car at 9:00 o'clock last night at the food lion in high point, north carolina. moments ago, her grandmother made an emotional plea for her safe return. >> whoever took the vehicle, i'm not sure whether or not you are aware that the baby was in the car or not. once you figured it out, i just want her to be taken to a safe place. >> anna: the vehicle described as a 2003 white chevy suburban with north carolina license plates, bjx 1565. any
chief of staff to president george w. bush and a fox news contributor with us from his home in austin, texas. you wrote a piece in the wall street journal, i know you've got a white board, too, so i'll get you to explain it. you call it the un affordable careless act. actually, that was a great line by the headline writer, but my piece was about the unintended consequences of the bill. president obama never sold the affordable care act to the american people by saying, look, this is going to create more part-time jobs in the place of full-time jobs, and yet that's one of big consequences of the bill. if you take a look at it, under the affordable care act a full-time worker is defined as somebody who works as 30 hours or more a a week, and if you work 30 hours or more a week, your employer has to provide you with health insurance coverage. now, this encourages a disincentive to employ people over 30 hours. the number of people who are working 30-34 hours a week has dropped 146,500 on average a month. the number of people working 25-29 hours a week has risen 119,000 on average per mont
not made a decision yet, former president george w. bush is weighing in. >> the president has a tough decision to make and if he decides to use our military, he'll have the greatest military ever backing him up. i was not a fan of mr. assad. he's an ally of iran and he made mischief. the president has to make a tough call. i know you are trying to suddenly rope me into the issues of the day. i refuse to be roped in. >> our chief political analyst gloria borger joins me from washington. you listened to secretary of state john kerry today. you heard the former president, reporters trying to ask questions of him. it's not a matter of what do we do about it, we be the united states? >> i think if you listened to the secretary of state, it was very clear that he believed he didn't need to wait for information from the weapons inspectors, from the united nations. he said very clearly that a u.n. investigators can't tell us anything we don't already know. and between the secretary of state and a background call that senior administration officials had with journalists, it's very clear they b
bush, and george w. bush. they say that, quote, there is no longer any credible scientific debate, end quote, about climate change. and they also point out that our window for action is shrinking. they say they support the actions that the president is now taking under the clean air act to reduce carbon pollution, and they call on congress to start the overdue debate about what bigger steps are needed domestically and internationally. and they conclude with this very powerful statement. quote, the only uncertainty about our world is how bad these changes will get and how soon what is most clear is that there is no time to waste, end quote. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields. for what purpose does the gentleman from arizona rise? >> mr. speaker, i ask unanimous consent to address the house for one minute. revise and extend my remarks. the speaker pro tempore: without objection. >> mr. speaker, i rise today to address attorney general holder's misinterpretation of federalism and his disregard for our system of checks and balances. the supreme court was clear in shelby vs. hold
, george herbert walker bush was president of the united states, jim baker was secretary of state, and they debating going in driving saddam hussein from qu wait where back to baghdad. it won the support of 31 nations. it won the supportave democratic congress. it won the support of united nations, and it won the summit of the american people overwhelmingly. sp that is the way to do it. just because presidents have tried to short circuit it from grenada to iraq now to syria since, if anything that's a modeled for failure, judy. >> woodruff: should-- >> i would say, i'd be in favor of going to the congress. i do agree with that. i have no problem with that and i think this case is actually kind of similar to the iraq war of 1991 in that it was a clear violation of international norms. i'm not sure i'd want to wait for the whole process to play out before we did anything and the war powers act allows for this because that really does look like it delays our reaction so distantly from the atrocity. >> woodruff: but what about mark's point about having a-- more of a coalition, having
to an attack on or threat to americans. bill clinton, george h.w. bush, ronald reagan. this would be different, would it not? >> no, i don't think so. i think when bill clinton got a nato agreement to attack serbia in the late 1990s because of the serbian attacks on cost so - so -- kosovo, that was another attack there there were no united states interests at stake, what's about to happen here. in both cases there was no chance the security council would agree to u.s. or nato action because of a russian veto. here are two clear cases this notion the u.s. can only act with the security council's approval or act militarily without it would violate the u.n. charter are wrong. >> ambassador bolton, thank you for standing by. we may come back to you in just a moment. we are awaiting the president's remarks. he is in the white house meeting with leaders in the baltic region. we were give an heads-up he would make remarks. here it is. >> everybody set up? obvious obviously, i'm very grateful to have my former presidents here as well as vice president. before i begin i want to say a few things about t
and human services from 2001 to 2005. he was appointed by president george w. bush. most recently for the record the governor joined the bipartisan policy center here as a senior adviser and we welcome him very much to the organization. governor, the budget when you took over in 2001 was about $380 billion is my record here. along with social security the was the largest and is the largest still today of the domestic agency. when you left at the end of 2004 it had grown $200 billion to over 580 billion-dollar agency. during your tenure you were hit with a slew of emergencies, anthrax, post 911, concerns over bioterrorism, the flu and the need to stockpile the smallpox vaccine. you also cleared up the plans to expand health insurance coveragn so when i look at your budget i know we are supposed to talk about constrained budgets but one might conclude you had no budget constraints on your agency but omb and barry anderson gave you a budget tie line. how did you go about and did the congress and particularly place restraints under congressional a budget that you hadn't anticipated cl
. it was never approved by congress. if george w. bush would have done that we would have had impeachment. we have part of our laws unilaterally suspended by the president by the year before he said he couldn't do that. there is just a variety of issues like that where he has gone outside. we have tension within our system and struggles facing congress and the president but this one is very serious. i think you will see it continue that there will be legal cases. all the way back here. i'm going to try to bounce around a little bit but again we will get to everybody. we are going to wear willful excel. >> thank you. i was concerned to find out you were not in support of making the continuing resolution contention upon removing what optional spending you can remove on obamacare. i feel strongly and i think others do and i speak from a point -- [applause] this is not theoretical for me because two weeks ago today my husband and i paid in cash for her son to have major surgery a four-hour procedure but that is the price i pay for the liberty of my children. i am self-employed and understand the
happened to george w. bush. i would argue that he overreacted in some ways in terms of completely changing the strategic vision trying to remake the middle east, invading iraq and, you know, stuff like that. you could argue that perhaps the obama administration has under reacted to changes that have happened in the sense of not -- certainly not enunciating whether or not they developed it and overarching strat by for the middle east during and after the arab spring. >> tomorrow on "morning joe," new york police chief ray kelly will be here. >> great. >> also she hosted president obama at her home recently, former host of npr's all things considered, michele norris joins us. >> you did that. >> yeah. >> this weekend. >> he was there this weekend? coming this weekend. going to watch football. >> that's fun. >> he's going to love your apartment. >> little tight, mr. president. >> get together and do the interview. >> lot of toys. >> david letterman reacts to miley's vma performance. news you can't use is next. i'm tony siragusa and i'm training guys who leak a little, to guard their manhood w
the george w. bush administration and was part of the council of economic advisers. specimen so much for being here today. special thanks to mohammed el- erian and mr. taylor for flying from california. i went to kick off the panel with you. coined the term, the new normal in 2009. your outlook for the economy has been dead on. how much longer is this economy going to remain in the new normal? me take you back to 2009 when the new normal concept came out. the idea was to signal that it would not be your traditional cyclical recovery. unless the mindset in washington changed, and there was a better understanding of the underlying dynamics, we risked getting stuck. in a keyword of unusually sluggish clerk -- growth, high on implement, that is when it materialized. concept of the economy stuck in second gear. let me push this analogy. it is not just stuck in second gear, it is being driven on a foggy road. there is some good news. we are doing better than others. europe was in reverse and just went to neutral. japan has been neutral for a long time and just jumps to first gear. we are d
just a if uh -- just a few years ago in the bush administration, we didn't give the united nations inspection team on the ground enough time. george tennett, the cia chief at the time, walked into the oval office just before the invasion and said, mr. president, it's a slam dunk. there are weapons of mass destruction in iraq. while we know how that played out. so i think that it's very important that we allow the u.n. inspectors on the ground to do a thorough investigation. but frankly, gentlemen, i'm fearful that the iraq scene could reemerge as we know about one month or six weeks ago. president obama was quoted as saying, yes, they've used -- yes, the government of syria has used chemical weapons and i have proof of that. however, the president never indicated what his proof was. and that one tended to die. so, gentlemen, i'm fearful that the -- that the -- the warships that are now moving in closer to syria may -- may use their missiles to take out government airfields and government installations without waiting for the u.n. team to -- to do their full investigation which may
